of the outbreak. california, mississippi and hawaii. but there are some new clues to show you tonight, stirring hope, and abc's chief medical editor dr. richard besser is here to show you. >> tonight, i'm cautiously optimistic, finally a sign in southern states hit earliest, and hardest, that the peak of the flu epidemic has passed. tonight, amid all of the sneezing and coughing, a glimmer of hope. we talked to hospitals and health departments across the south and many are seeing it. from knoxville, tennessee, "we're seeing that downturn." to north carolina, "looks like we peaked early." but it's not universal. even in the same states, some hospitals are still getting slammed. "our numbers don't yet reflect a downturn," a doctor from duke university hospital, also in north carolina, tells us. this year's flu season hit early, november 25th, a month earlier than a typical one. we're now six weeks into it, and if this year is like years past, we are likely to have six or more weeks to go. it's not too late to get some protection and today, the cdc provided first indication as to how well the vacc

. former mississippi governor haley barbour, a very smart politician, he's he seconded jindal's thoughts. >> the point he made is exactly right. when you consider what two senate candidates, the comments they made were stupid comments, offensive comments, and in today's world when a candidate in one state says something, the negative effect of that can spill over to lots of other candidates, and bobby jindal was exactly right. >> the problem is, joy, where were these whistle-blowers last august when they were listening to donald trump, when they were hugging him, when they were listening to the birther crowd, the louis gohmerts of the crowd, the rick santorums talking about birth control. they got equal time with the more sane members of the right. >> exactly. the energy of the party is with the richard mourdock crowd. isn't bobby jindal the same guy who signed off in teaching creationism in schools as science. he hasn't been -- >> equal time again. >> exactly. the problem is, too, i think the consultants in the party, the political class understands they need to change and bobby jindal

that whatever is done actually is a solution to the problem. >> former mississippi governor haley barber summarized the general republican argument against strict gun control this morning, on meet the press, by saying simply, that if you make it a crime to have a gun, only criminals will have guns. >> harris: what about all the talk about a potential bill to ban assault weapons being introduced? where do we stand on that? >> reporter: harris, we heard this morning, that two democratic senators, dianne feinstein from california and richard blumenthal from connecticut plan to introduce that soon and freshman senator chris murphy, a democrat from connecticut who attended several funerals for sandy hook elementary students before he was sworn in said he will support that legislation and told us more about it. >> it's a tighter ban than the previous ban. and it will address high capacity magazines, but the fact is that as soon as we pass that ban, back in the 1990's, the gun manufacturers found a way around it and other states, like new jersey and california, have passed much stricter bans an
's steven polazzo of mississippi. he said after touring the area it reminded him of how katrina hurt the district that he now represents. i guess some of those 179 republicans might actually have benefitted from seeing the damage for themselves before they voted. >> yeah. they have an idea of what they think the northeast is. it goes back to age old countryside versus city rivalry. so they think everything is manhattan. when they actually -- when he actually toured it and saw these are americans just like people in mississippi that they also need help. and, you know, the republicans would be wise to remember they're on the winning end of a very good deal here. if the federal government just vanished, the northeast would become richer and the south would become poorer. because there is a large transfer of wealth in tax dollars from the north down to the south. so why they would want to mess with that arrangement is beyond me. >> professor michael eric dyson and ryan grim whose office enjoys watching our broadcast even as he speaks to us, thanks very much. much more ahead. but first su
from alabama, mississippi, georgia, virginia, and tennessee, and south carolina were unanimously opposed. in the east, the northeast, house republicans were 24 to 1 in favor, with new york and pennsylvania unanimous. well, the danger for the gop is it's becoming a religious sectional ultra conservative party great at winning and holding gerrymandered seats but too willing to sacrifice entire regions of the country. former congress chris shays is a republican from connecticut and howard fineman is editorial director of "the huffington post" as well as an msnbc political analyst and our pal and my pal. look, chris shays, it's great to have you on because you have always been my notion of a reasonable moderate republican from the moderate reasonable part of the country meaning connecticut. see how i warm you up here? now my question is why have you guys been abandoned by the southern crowd? it's almost like the civil war went the other way and the south somehow took over the party of lincoln, not that there's anything wrong with the south, but it's certainly made your party in a rig
, you can see them there, mississippi, arkansas, north dakota and south dakota. a lot of people, a lot of women and men as well around the country might be very surprised to learn that those states only have one place where women can go, and that is not only because there's a concern for the safety of those that work at those clinics in that state, it's also because there isn't an appetite to support more facilities like that in those states, correct? >> that's absolutely the case. and you know, when you start thinking about the jurymandering of the drawing of political lines that support the most right wing candidates across the country, democrats, thomas, received more votes than republicans did, but because of the jurymandering during redistricting it has been difficult to get pro-choice people elected to congress. perhaps in these states, citizens there can send a message, not just about abortion, but about affirming american values and rights to privacy. as nancy pointed out, this is a decision that should be between a woman and her doctor, not some politician from mississippi or
, south dakota and mississippi and arkansas. where the doctor asked us to conduct the interview in silhouette to conduct the interview that way for his safety. given the personal risks he is taking by doing this work, why does he choose to do it? why does he decide every day to be the only abortion provider in arkansas? his answer was that it is a needed thing. somebody has to do it. watch. >> prior to roe v. wade, the number one killer of women of child bearing age was complications associated with abortion. and now it's not in the top 100 causes of death in women of this age group. i think that something that has been forgotten by a younger group of medical providers. they just haven't seen the consequences, and the american people have forgotten as a general rule what things were like prior to the legalization of abortion. and limiting access to abortion doesn't keep people from getting abortion. it just makes it less safe and increases the incidents of complication. >> in other words, as he sees it, the big change ushered in by roe versus wade is safety. the big change is no
to the university of mississippi tp it took the federal troops to go in there to get them in the door. a governor named george wallace tried to stop people at the door at the university of alabama, they had to be pushed aside. that's an aggressive commune tearian motion of rights where you have to get together to get it done. you don't hide out in a lime shack with a couple guns ansay this is my idea of rights. >> it's about community. women didn't have the right to vote until 1919, and it took individual women and communities of women and the american people ultimately to come together and say, this is the right time, we need to make this change. >> but you feel the positive embrace. it wasn't like a bunch of humorless suffragettes with placards like those people, activists. >> no, we're in it together. that's what was so great about this speech. we're in it together. and we're standing together whether it's women or lgbt members or african-americans hispanics, immigrants. this is the melts pot. >> here is the president's message. it was one of inclusion, as you just said, stephanie, and yesterd
and federal level. >> jennifer: the last abortion clinic in mississippi is on the verge of shutting down because state lawmakers have made the requirements for it to operate so onerous, and the governor said last week my goal of course is to shut it down. so what does roe v. wade mean if states can do this? >> it's no longer ago the legality of it and access to care that women seek. what is sad about these politicians is that they don't believe that women can make this decision with their family and their doctors. they believe that politicians should make these decisions. so women, men, and families have to say enough. state out of our business and we have connect the personal to the political, and until states elect governors and legislators that are going to advance pro choice values we're going to see this kind of activity. fundamentally elections matter. >> jennifer: right and in the off years often democrats do not come out to vote. which is why these all of the governors took over in 2010 and that's why you are continuing to see all of these bills come forward. yet
on these farmers an ranchers. the right now the corps of engineers is focused on the mississippi river and able to get crops. jenna: i heard some of the barges are own half full is that right? because the weight, they're worried about running aground? >> that's correct. the river is basically down to a very minimum in terms of barge traffic and as a result, the corps is working to clear up a channel for the barges that requires work to clear out rocks that have been there forever obviously. they're doing it on expedited basis. this interrupts the flow of traffic which is infortunate. fortunately we still have traffic on the mississippi. there were concerns we might not even have it at this point in time. we have to keep our fingers crosses that the water will flow down the mississippi. jenna: you think about droit and barren fields but how important the mississippi river is to commerce in country. they ended up extending the old farm bill. the question of the role of government we talk about a lot these days. i was doing interviewing and research leading up to this segment. i got two different
the ice in mississippi. it's now warmer there. slowly improving. overnight we had a little ice in tennessee. temperatures warmed up now. so we're not so much dealing with too many problems in areas around nashville and also into louisville and lexington. much of west virginia is warming up. they're mostly dealing with rain. travel on the east coast today, the airports will be a mess in all areas of the northeast today, especially new york city up into boston. philadelphia airports dealing with rain. a lot of rain later today especially in areas of georgia. some rain will push into virginia and washington, d.c., and baltimore and maryland areas. as far as the total accumulations go with this storm, we're mostly looking at a three to five inch event across new england. south coast of new england will be dealing mostly with sleet and mixing in with a little snow. only zero to an inch. and in areas of central connecticut, probably two to three inches. four inches across the catskills. again, not a blockbuster snow event. the timing of this on a full day of work and school for so ma
